A couple of familiar faces will be part of the STRANGER THINGS adventure when the hit supernatural series returns to Netflix.

Variety reports that Cary Elwes (SAW) and Jake Busey (pictured, of THE FRIGHTENERS) have been cast in STRANGER THINGS’ third season, for which an airdate has yet to be announced. Elwes will play Mayor Kline, while Busey will portray a character named Bruce. Maya Hawke is another new lead for the show’s next round of eight episodes, and Priah Ferguson’s Erica Sinclair will become a recurring role, opposite returning stars Millie Bobby Brown, David Harbour, Winona Ryder, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo and Caleb McLaughlin.
